This Saturday, The Drinks Are On Us …

Okay, okay, calm down. After all, we ain’t talking about Grandpa Abbott’s apple jack, here.

On Saturday, June 28, from 11 am to 1 pm, Parker House Coffee will be holding a coffee tasting at the Dimond Hill Farm Stand. You may not have tried or even heard of Parker House Coffee, but I guarantee you’ll enjoy getting to know this local brand.

Parker House Coffee owner Mason Parker is a New Hampshire native who turned his “healthy passion for enjoying an exceptional cup of coffee” into a full time coffee roasting business in Greenfield, New Hampshire.

Mason Parker will be at the farm stand Saturday morning to talk coffee with both the customers and the curious … and, of course, with my group … the coffee drinkers who can’t pass up a free cup. Parker House Coffee is carefully sourced from organic farms worldwide and roasted to perfection at the family business in Greenfield. Varieties such as Burundi, Columbia, Costa Rica, Peru and Sumatra are available in light, medium and dark roast. Decaf varieties also are available.

The freshly roasted beans are packaged in glass Mason Jars for freshness and as a way of keeping the finished bean a bit “Green,” so to speak, by packaging the product in reusable and recyclable containers.

So, come on by Saturday from 11 am to 1 pm and talk with Mason Parker, try some of his coffee, and enjoy the good life on the hill for a few moments. Oh, speaking about good life, I need to tell you about another new product now on the farm stand – Organic Milk.

The Kimball Brook Farm in North Ferrisburgh, Vermont, is supplying the farm stand with fresh, organic, local milk in a variety of sizes, flavors, and strengths (skim to half n’half). I know most of you have grown up with supermarket milk collected by corporate farmers from the udders of cultivated cows and you’ve gotten used to the taste. Well, I guess there’s nothing wrong with that … after all, people get used to all sorts of things. (Remind me to tell you about my cousin Ernie’s discount wooden leg sometime.) However, on its best day, supermarket milk provides but a shadow of the taste and natural nutrition of good, wholesome, organic milk.

A Certified Organic dairy, the Kimball Brook Farm sits on 955 acres in Vermont’s Champlain Valley and is home to a herd of 200 Jerseys and Holsteins that still walk the pastures and graze on untouched grasslands, where they enjoy the sunshine and exercise, and where they please their Yankee owners by providing the side benefit of fertilizing the fields.

So, there you go … two more reasons to visit the Dimond Hill Farm Stand this weekend. Lettuce is fresh from the fields, everybody’s holding their breaths for the tomatoes to start coming in, there’s greens, cukes, pies, breads, cheeses, pasta, sweet stuff, frozen stuff, fizzy stuff and, my personal favorite, ice cream … just don’t tell my wife …

We’ll be looking for you.

Until then, nuff said …
